Carl, Sorry I will be out of town this weekend but I plan to be there for the fun fly. I was out at the field on saturday and it was in pretty good shape except for some weeds in the pits. The runways looked real good though. Just some info for you on the work day.

I was amazed today at how much damage a person can do to the weeds with only the little manual weed cutter we have in the big cabinet. No noise, no gas, no batteries. Since it is a manually operated device, and it was hot, it was hard to get the thing started. But in 20 minutes I think I mad more progress than a string trimmer would. Still many weeds to chop and spray. The runway doesn't look too bad, so we can probably handle it with herbicide instead of breaking up the realy nice surface we have right now.

Thermals---I need thermals!

Mike Balas is bringing a string trimmer, I'll bring my sprayer to augment the one we have out there. I can also pull the roller on the parking lot which should kill quite a few of the existing weeds, especially the halogeton. The road in is rough when climbing the hill, but not bad enough to worry about. BTW, I let the County know that the culvert they put under the road where we turn off 6200 Rd. is plugged with dirt and rocks already. One of the downpours we had out there apparently sent a whole bunch of stuff down the county road. They won't be able to do much about it very soon, but may end up pulling the culvert and resetting it with more of a gradient so the debris keeps moving through.

Sorry I won't make it out today, but if there is a job that doesn't get done today I'll find an evening this week to do it.

Thank you Carl, for all your hard work and Cliff and Don and Jim and Byron. You guys are the strength of the association. If I forgot someone, I apologize. There are others. I was home wacking weeds for a couple of hours to show the house, again.

Onward and Upward.
